General Discussion / Re: 1967 Camaro built in 66 titled 1966
« on: February 15, 2019, 09:37:22 PM »
Title may have a 1966 date but unless somebody REALLY messed up, the year of the car will say 1967.

Without seeing the title, the discussion is pointless.

Thatís a good 350 crankshaft. If it checks out, use it.

It is a 1971 Flint warranty or over the counter block.  No way to tell what it was originally, as far as I know.

Question......my 67 LOS L35 w/TH400 has the original driveshaft with the nylon injected yoke and trunnions .....do you think that these can cause issues from age?

Mike

I certainly think that is possible. I love originality but when choosing between that and safety, safety always wins. You could put it on the bench and do a careful inspection to see if anything is loose before replacing.

Decoding/Numbers / Re: Casting Date?
« on: February 12, 2019, 08:25:04 PM »
I donít think the K 12 is a casting date. The 3970010 block was made for a long time. Starting in 1969 and comtnued into the early 80s I think.

Check the bellhousing flange behind the distributor area for a casting date.

What I formation is stamped on the front pad of the block?

I saw a 69 unrestored car at the "survivor show" in Bloomington a few years ago claiming to be a rare L88 SS Camaro. Are you saying this was not an available special option, and he could have only gotten those over the counter for a 69 Camaro?

No factory L88 Camaros from 1967 to 1969. Period.

I do know a few things....

Maintenance / Re: TH400 Rebuild

Itís nice to see the CC ink stamp on the trans. Car must be a low miles car or trans was taken out early?

Interesting stand. Will it stay balanced with just one trans on it?

Keep us posted on your progress. Itís been many years since I had to mess with a TH400, and seems I probably forgot most of what I learned about them internally - as far as working on/rebuilding them.

Originality / Re: Rosette shape variances in 67
« on: February 10, 2019, 06:01:53 PM »
There are known cases with original cars - in 67 - with one round and one rosette rivet. A few with both being round and original. There are other things to look for to say if itís original or not.

General Discussion / Re: Valuation of 1968 Z 2/8's in the US market..
« on: February 09, 2019, 06:42:08 AM »
Bryon - again.. I think why I assumed it wasn't correct was that the GM Vintage Services documentation I received when I purchased the package back in the mid '90's said the delivery was Feb 26th or 28th or something like that, and I assumed that it couldn't (the rear end) be installed the same day as delivery was slated to be - but I guess the 'delivery' date could actually be a lot of different things to different people or GM departments like.. (a) Scheduled to actually leave the factory assembly line (b) Picked up from the actual Norwood facility (c) or Actually strapped onto a rail car and sent off somewhere.
Maybe all of the paper trail sheets do have some bit of 'slack' in them too, despite what the date on the tags or shipping paper work actually says..
I'm not that familiar with how the Norwood, or how in fact any of the plant scheduling and paperwork meshed up or worked.. I'm sure it wouldn't certainly be as precise as today's plant more computerized schedules - but again I'm only speculating somewhat in saying that.. 

When you have time, take a look again and contact me.

In some cases, dates are very tight together. In other cases, depending on ratio and when it was in the production cycle, there is more spread.

Putting a value on it is kinda tough. I like red but original color would be better.

Tell me more about the rear ended date and date on the body tag - month/week.

Remember what Ed said.

ďYou'll need to post pictures of everything (including the VIN) so we can give you more information.Ē
